UFC star Paddy Pimblett has been out of action since his win against Tony Ferguson this past December. Now he’s eager to get back in the octagon, and there’s no lack of opponents to choose from.

“As you know, UFC 300, everybody wants a slice of ‘The Baddy,’” Pimblett recently said in a YouTube video.

“Bobby Green screamed my name on the mic after it. Didn’t surprise me, know what I mean? He might be ranked, but he’s got no followers and he needs me. Just like everyone else, they want to fight me because they know I’m the boy. Bobby Green’s an option. If Bobby Green wants to fight, I’m there.”

Paddy Pimblett wants Renato Moicano

However, even more intriguing than Green is a fight against Brazilian veteran Renato Moicano.

“I’d rather fight my boy, Moicano. Where you at, Renato? I don’t even dislike Renato Moicano. I actually like him. He’s a funny guy. He’s a cool dude. So me and him having a fight would be hilarious. The buildup to that fight would be very, very funny. I think it’d be even funnier if me and him done a season of The Ultimate Fighter.”

“That’d be six, seven, eight weeks of pure comedy for the fans. So I would — I’d love that, to be honest. And I’d rather go right in at rank 10 rather than beating rank 15.”
